ABSTRACT

Endophytes are microorganisms that reside within the tissues of plants with symbiotic or mutualistic relationship. During the present study, endophytic fungus Curvularia lunata was isolated from the symptomless leaves of the Catharanthus roseus. The secondary metabolites produced by the endophytic fungus C.lunata showed significant antimicrobial activity towards the test organisms. TLC, HPTLC analyses of the extract revealed the presence of terpenoid like compound. FTIR spectra showed characteristic triterpenoid saponin absorptions. UV-Visible spectroscopy showed a sharp peak at 301nm characteristic of terpenoids.

Keywords: Antimicrobial activity, Endophytic fungi, Catharanthus roseus, Curvularia lunata, terpenoid.
